Technical Information

1
Crosscontact sole
The design of the sole is the product of extensive research at our laboratories, combined with a special rubber formula to optimise grip and traction. Given the range of different needs, we are always seeking the best compromise for walking on both wet and dry terrain.
2
Waterproofing test
The boots equipped with the NOVADRY® technology are tested in the laboratory and in the field and guarantee optimum waterproofing and breathability. First, the boot is immersed in water while the air pressure inside is increased to check that no bubbles form on the surface. Next, the boots are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water to test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
3
3 levels of waterproofing
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2,000 flexes (around 2 hours of walking), 4,000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking) and 8,000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry. Forclaz 500 high hiking boots for children are waterproof for 4,000 flexes.
4
Prolonging the waterproof properties
A shoe's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. To keep your feet dry for longer, we recommend wearing waterproof gaiters or mini-gaiters to protect the top part of the boots and prevent water, pebbles, sand, etc. from getting inside. To restore the original water repellent properties and prevent staining the outer surface, spray with a waterproof spray several times per year.
5
Buying tips
Allow children to try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check two comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down. Avoid all pressure points when trying them on. Don't hesitate to allow then to walk around the store. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.
6
What shoe size should I choose?
For hiking, try taking one shoe size up from your usual to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from hitting the toe box. Tip: before any descent, make sure that your toe nails are clipped and that your laces are tightened so that your feet cannot slide forwards in the boot.
7
Field test
All our boots are tested in real-life conditions by testers who are representative of the target customer to ensure that they fit properly and are comfortable in use. Our Missions Tests link the product manager up with people who are not affiliated to Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.
8
Laboratory Testing
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to pass the following: tearing resistance of the eyelets and straps, resistance of adhesives, toxicology, UV resistance, to abrasion of the outsole and upper components, accelerated ageing.

Looking for a warm comfortable shoe to walk, go out and about over winter but not wear wellies. These are ideal. He loves them and wears them all the time.

I like these boots, but they are leaking falling apart after little use. They look old and wear out too quickly.
Nice look and fit
Sadly leak and have split across top
